Speaking Tour, Day 2
The second day of the Distinguished Advisor Family Business and Year End Tax Planning Workshop was in Vancouver; thanks to everyone who participated! I’m always interested to hear the questions that are raised, as well as the experiences that advisors have with their clients. This active, in the field interaction helps to keep my presentations practical and real, as I believe that this experience puts advisors in the best position to help others.
Key thing to think about for Day 2: Investor ready business planning isn’t just for start up and early stage companies; it is also extremely important for growth stage businesses, as well as those that are considering succession. As I’ve raised on every stop of this tour, the vast majority of business plans I’ve seen in my career are not investor ready (most are nowhere near ready!), and this is a significant problem for those seeking capital. I’ve developed an approach based on my years in the venture capital industry, so if you’re going to invest the time to develop a business plan, do it the investor ready way!
Thanks to the Vancouver Club for their hospitality. Up next: Calgary
